Osun State Governor, Ademola Adeleke has cautioned against any form of conduct or activities that may be inimical to the peace and progress of the State.

In a statement signed by Olawale Rasheed, the spokesperson of the Governor, Adeleke also directed all security agencies in the State to ensure a strict maintenance of law and order.

The warning is coming on the heels of the ruling of the Federal High Court, Osogbo on Friday which refused an oral application for stay of execution filed by the sacked elected Osun local government officials.

The Osun Government is alleging that the ruling had generated negative reactions from the opposition party and their legal functionaries with alleged incitement to violence.

Recall that on Friday, November 25, 2022, the Federal High Court sitting in Osogbo declared the Osun local government election as illegal.

The Court presided by Justice Ayo Nathaniel Emmanuel, while nullifying the process, directed the elected Chairmen and councillors to vacate their offices.

In line with the judgment, the governor on Monday, November 28, 2022, directed the highest ranking civil servants to take over administration in the local governments, local council development areas and area offices.

The governor on Monday in other to avert a break down of law and order also directed security agencies to move in and maintain the status quo.

The governor also suspended the Chairman of the Osun State Independent Electoral Commission (OSIEC), Segun Oladitan and other members of the OSIEC Board and also the Certificate of Returns already issued to the elected Chairmen and councillors were also withdrawn.
